In 2005 and 2006, I lived in London, doing an SAP project for my employer (Big Oil company with a pectin for an emblem..). My dad took me up in a Cessna 150 for the first in about 1970. Been mad crazy for airplanes ever since, and ended up as a flight mechanic doing search and rescue in the US Coast Guard. Pop was a CG vet, and for his 75th birthday, I flew him to London to visit, and took him to the old RAF base at Duxford, and got him a ride in a De Havilland Tiger Moth. The pilot was great, and let him take the stick for quite a bit of tDad's trip to Duxford 025.jpghe flight. he was seriously pumped!
Airplane pull. They never did get it airborne.
Went to an airshow back in 2006 at what was once RAF Biggin Hill outside London. There was a glider aerobatic act on the schedule. Didn't notice at first the tow plane was an Extra 300 until he rolled inverted while pulling the glider. Not long after, they were BOTH inverted....darnedest thing I have ever seen at an airshow.
